With photography by Robin Hammond of Panos Pictures, this multimedia piece looks at the island nation of Tuvalu, as the Tuvaluan people become some of the first environmental refugees, a direct result of man-made climate change.
Robin Hammond's work on the victims of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is the first work of a photojournalist to be published by Edition Bessard as part of his Zine Collection. Number 9 of the series, it is limited to 300 copies and comes with a signed print by the artist.
The Syrian and other refugees streaming into Europe since 2015 have roiled its politics and tested its tolerance. But they’re just the latest of many waves of immigrants since World War II. Indians in Britain, Algerians in France, Somalis in Sweden are some of the immigrants who are reshaping the continent. Commissioned by National Geographic Magazine, Robin Hammond travelled through Europe to tell the stories of ‘The New Europeans.’

"Robin Hammond's book, produced with assistance from the Carmignac Foundation, is a true work of classic photojournalism. Poignant and moving, telling but not insensitive, Hammond's work reveals the darker demons of Mugabe's chokehold on Zimbabwe. Where words fail, Hammond's photographs pick up — pulling no punches about the lives destroyed by violence and cruelty. The realities shared in the book are hard to swallow but even harder to ignore."
